Any new bus registrations received will take two days to route. You will be called once your child is routed on their bus.
We do require all riders to be at their bus stop 10 minutes prior to the assigned time, this is due to time fluctuation of weather, traffic and other variables.
The Transportation Department of Cheney Public Schools is committed to transporting students safely and professionally, to and from school and activities, in order to optimize their educational experience. In order for us to continue to ensure student safety, we will accommodate one pick up and one drop off address per student.
Please keep in mind High School and Cheney Middle School students and Windsor and Westwood students must catch their own bus at their school of attendance. Students are not allowed to walk to another school to catch their bus.
Transportation Department office hours during busing: 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on days when school is in session. The Transportation office is located just east of Cheney Middle School (across from their parking lot).
Back to school safety tips for bus riders and their parents to review:
When being dropped off, students should exit the bus and walk ten giant steps away from the bus. If crossing the road after leaving the bus or in the morning crossing to get on the bus, always wait for the driver to signal you to cross. Keep a safe distance between you and the bus. Remember that the bus driver can see you best when you are away from the bus.
Once you are on the bus, remain seated and follow the driver's directions. When the driver asks you to do something or to stop doing something, don't make a fuss or talk back, there's a good reason for the request.
Children who walk to school should also follow safety rules:
